What I'm looking for

Every job I've had, I've drifted towards ops and administration because it was recognised that I could problem-solve at least as well as I could code - and now that's what I want to exclusively work in. I'm a sysadmin at heart.

Tech I've done amazing things with (and want more of)

Stuff I've done before

Places I've done it


I'm an avid problem-solver but also an explorer at heart. Though I'm probably never happier than when I'm completely lost and relying on my navigational senses, I love spacial data, mapping, and using it to my advantage to find new places to wander. I know the shortcuts, footpaths, woodlands, hidden meadows of my surrounding area, I've cycled all over the Peak District and Yorkshire Dales without any particular direction in mind, hiked up to Swiss glaciers, walked the length of the South Downs.

When I'm not out on my bike or solving problems that I didn't know I had, I can be found listening to (and occasionally making) an eclectic range of music, watching films that make you scratch your head, sketching the world around me, playing obscure board games, and building my engagement in local activism.
